The Flashing Blade Podcast Interview Special 6 - Matthew Waterhouse

Right then, have an interview with Matthew Waterhouse. We managed to get him for a phone natter whilst he was at a book signing. In it he tells us a little about his books, his days on the show and also comments on how both he and his charecter, Adric, have been perceived down the years... Listen after the DWPA interview with Matthew as, hopefully, the two go together...

Note: Thie interview was done over the electric telephone, so there's a bit of scrunchle and other general radiophonic sounds...

Contained within, please find a small podcast from the Doctor Who Podcast Alliance - which can be found at - featuring Adam from Staggering Stories, Martyn from Bad Wilf, Tony from The Flashing Blade and... some old git from Professor Dave's Ark In Space. The podcast gives a nice little flavour of the event at Waterstones, Lakeside in Thurrock and we have interviews with Hirst Books, Tenth Planet, some of the, er 'crowd', and of course, Matthew Waterhouse himself. Matthew also gives us a reading from his memoir, 'Blue Box Boy'.

Colditz! No, really. Bob and Tony look at Colditz and muse on why Nicholas Young keeps going in shows that involve 'breaking out'... (LAUGH!)

Also, plenty of feedback and the winners of the 'sound like the TARDIS' comp are announced!


All that and we put to bed the whole Bob/Adric thing...
